I’m including one all-encompasing "enclosure card" in my invitations. I don’t have a ton of room, but want to make sure I"m not missing something super important!
The invite has the date, location, times, reception to follow, so I’m using my "enclosure card" as a catch all for: our wedding web site, registry info. and directions. (I also have a reponse card).
Am I missing something important?

I had a similar problem where I was trying to get too much info on the enclosure card. I ended up just putting a message about the wedding webiste indicating that all information was listed there. They say not to put registry info in the invitation anyway but you can list it on the website. Too much information may appear cluttered and everyone will be able to access the information on the website.

I did two cards just because my invite was small in size and all the info would have never fit on one card. I included hotels in the area and directions on one card. One a seperate one I put down some fun places to see or things to do in the area and the on the back I put the attire, registry and menu information. We’re having a cocktail reception so I said things like: "Cocktail attire is appropriate….Hors D’Ouevres and cocktails will be served….and We’re registered at the following…."
Future MrsBLT made a good suggestion of putting them on your website if you have one.

I second <font size=”2″ color=”#81a026″>FutureMrsBLT</font> ‘s comment about Registry. It’s rude to put that information in your invites. If you have a wedding website, it’s better to refer guests to your site and put registry information there. But manly rely on word of mouth for registries, let MOB, MOH and FMIL spread the word. If any part of your wedding is outside it is nice to make sure that is clear to guests so they will be prepared for sun or wind, etc. You may want to just note this on your enclosure card.
